This is a mountain subspecies, spread from the Pyrenees until the Cantabrian Range, between 600 and 2300 m high. Hybrid forms have been observed in the Iberian System, Sierra de Béjar and Sierra de Guadarrama ( Ornosa & Ortiz-Sánchez 2004). Castro (1994) considered it a hybrid form of B. pascuorum freygessneri  and B. pascuorum dusmeti  .

At present it has been collected in temperate oceanic Pyrenean forests and supraforestal pastures between 960 and 1992 m ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), on Antirrhinum majus  L., Buxus sempervirens  L. Centaurea scabiosa  L., Echium plantagineum (Nox.)  , Echium vulgare L.  , Eryngium bourgatii Gouan.  , Lotus corniculatus  L., Medicago sativa L.  , Origanum vulgare  L., Prunella vulgaris  L., Reseda lutea  L., Silene acaulis  (L.) Jacq., Salvia pratensis  L., Taraxacum officinale Wigg.  , Trifolium pratense L.  , Trifolium repens L.  y Vicia cracca L.
